I had some free time, so what did I do?
I checked the computer to see if I'd heard from you.
I used to walk out to a box to retrieve mail
But I'd rather get it instantly than wait on the snail...
Checking my e-mail is always fun
I usually get a joke or greeting from someone.
I feel so blessed because on the other end
I know I've connected with a friend.
When I've had a hard day and need to share
Here I can find a friend who will listen and care.
And to this friend I hope I've let them know
That I am always there for them also.
Isn't it a strange kind of bond we form?
It isn't exactly like the "norm,"
But where is it written, face to face we have to be
For you to be a very good friend to me?
That little joke, or note, or even just a simple "Hi"
Could be like a ray of sunshine from the sky.
So my online-pals, this is dedicated to you
For all the smiles you have made anew.
May our friendship continue to grow
and the warmth we feel continue to flow.
Always remember this....
A smile is such an easy thing
To pass along the way,
Like a ray of summer sunshine
On a somewhat gloomy day.
So pass one on to those you meet
Then watch that person's face...
And feel the warmth as it's returned;
It's called a "smile embrace."
